Am I not Farang?

A huge statue of a Reclining Buddha in Wat Lokaya Sutha, Ayutthaya, Thailand. 26 dec 1999
The reclining Buddha represents Shakyamuni Buddha (the historical Buddha) at his death. It is said that the Buddha knew death was approaching, and asked his disciples to prepare a couch for him in a grove. He lay there, reclining on his right side, facing west, with his head supported by his hand, as he passed into nirvana.
